I heart wallpaper!

I love wallpaper, any space, anytime. Below are some of the most beautiful wallpapers out n’about today. My wallpaper tips: 1. Don’t hang your grandmothers wallpaper. For goodness sake please research the latest wallpaper fashions before selecting. 2. Don’t be afraid of large patterns. The larger the better. The key is to choose a wallpaper that has a lot of open negative space, this determines the “busyness” of wallpaper, not the size of the pattern. 3. Make sure you know what you are doing, if you want to hang it yourself, otherwise you can make expensive mistakes. 4. If you don’t have the money to wallpaper your entire room, just do one accent wall, or use large picture frames to frame wallpaper and hang it on the wall, less commitment for you commitmentphobes out there. 5. JUST USE IT!

I love using wallpaper for other uses than just on the walls.

Wallpapering old furniture to create an updated look is a very creative and inexpensive way to recycle those goodwill finds.

Wallpapering the inside of bookshelves gives a punch of color and showcases your beautiful books and accessories.

    I am a fan of wallpaper but still haven’t made the plunge to install it in my own home. The first place I would start is wallpaper the backs of bookshelves. Thanks for the tips!
